If you were wondering where to start in making incredible edibles with cannabutter, then you have come to the right place, as there is nothing sweeter, more delicious or more potent than these cannabutter butter tarts. These cannabutter edibles are infused right from the light and flakey crust down to the deep and rich buttery core, and the best part is they are personalizable by adding any type of topping like chocolate chips, peanuts, almonds, cashews, coconut or be eaten alone.

So get out your cannabutter, baking tools and most wholesome ingredients, and let’s get started on preparing the most incredible edibles that you have ever tasted. Just remember, if you are a new consumer or just learning how to make edibles, you might want to dilute the combination by using some regular cannabis free butter in place of a portion of cannabutter for a less potent result.

Crust ingredients:

  • 2 ¼ cups of white all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup of cannabutter
  • ½ cup of shortening
  • 5 tablespoons of cold water
  • ½ teaspoon of salt

Filling ingredients:

  • ½ cup of dark brown sugar
  • ½ cup of pure corn syrup
  • ¼ cup of cannabutter (room temperature)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • ¼ cup of topping (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt


  • 1 large bowl
  • 4-inch round cookie cutter
  • Food processor
  • Saran wrap
  • Roller
  • Electric hand mixer


  1. The first thing that you will need to do is prepare the mini crusts for your cannabutter tarts. To do this, add the cannabutter, salt, sugar and flour to a food processor, and blend the ingredients on high until all the cannabutter is in small pieces that are no larger than a kernel corn.

  2. Add water, and use your hands to work it into the batter.

  3. Separate the pie crust dough into two portions before wrapping and refrigerating the chunks for 30 minutes.

  • Dust a clean surface and roll one of the portions of dough onto it.

  • Use the cookie cutter to create circles that are perfect for fitting into muffin or tart pans. Once all the cups are full, place them in the refrigerator while you prepare the filling.

  • Add all the tart filling ingredients to a large bowl, ensuring that the cannabutter is softened and at room temperature. If it is not, then heat it in the microwave at 30-second intervals on high until it turns into a liquid that is easy to mix.

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F and while you wait, mix all the ingredients together with an electric hand mixer until the mix reaches a smooth and even color and consistency.

  • Take the butter tart shells out of the fridge and fill each on approximately ¾ of the way with sweet filling mixture.

  • Bake the cannabutter butter for 15 minutes.

  • When they are finished baking, remove the tarts from the oven, and cool for at least 1 full hour before serving. That will allow the filling to set and harden, which makes enjoying these delicious incredible edibles much easier
